since i'm from PA, i'm in mushroom territory, but i'm always scared i'd pick the wrong kind. as in 'shrooms.

i believe that life would not be complete sans comfy 'ol tee-shirts, the Golden Girls, and the color pink

Yes, they do. My In-laws have a place in Curtis, and they can usually find them over Memorial Day weekend...

Morels are so distinctive that it is the only mushroom I'd trust myself with. It is completely and totally unlike anything else. I'd never trust myself with any other kind. Is it true that in some parts of Europe you can bring your mushroom cache in and have it inspected to insure that it is safe to eat? I read that somewhere. At any rate, nothing deadly poisonous looks like a morel (in our area), so I feel safe with that. I'd not do anything else without having an experienced guide with me.
